About the Book by Jennet Conant Titled “Fierce Ambition: The Life and Legend of War Correspondent Maggie Higgins”

From a Washington Post book review by Helene Stapinksi headlined”The trailblazing reporter who defied journalistic sexism”:

Around 9 p.m. on many nights in the early 1960s, an exclusive by the journalist Maggie Higgins would roll off the New York Herald Tribune’s presses, and editors at the New York Times would call to ask their Washington staff to match her scoop for the next day’s paper. For years, Higgins drove her competitors into fits of jealousy and resentment.
